a letter to senators john mccain, lindsey gramm, kelly ayotte, who have been demanding more information. they hoped from soundness yesterday or the day before that they would be able to change minds and make these centers -- senators vote yes. there is information that republicans say they want. it also seems like they were unhappy with his pick, they wanted -- wanted a different tack, and they did not -- they did not want to be conciliatory about it. host: 1 vote for present. why did they go that way? guest: senator hatch of voted present. it beats me why he did. you either vote yes or no. there is a rumor that he did not believe in the filibuster. if you do not believe in the filibuster, you should probably vote yes. republican leadership was actively whipping. that would be the reason. of the people who voted to block it, one was center collins -- senator collins from the northeast. also, senator johanns from nebraska, who was one of senator hagel's colleagues from nebraska. host: what happens from here in terms of having a defense secretary? guest: i think the white house is irritat
if you want to give john mccain and the others the benefit of the kout, they're national heroes and they think it's markers for things like the iraq surge. if you're not in the right place on that, you're not a true national hero stewarding the interests of the country in the right way. the deeper thing is this is a time where the other side really just wants to tear down the president anyway he can and to do it viciously every day over and over again and not be about constructive solutions. now, i happen to be one who doesn't think john mccain and even lindsey graham are really about that, but i think that the ted cruzs and inhofes are. >> cruz is voting against everybody. >> i think it's -- the petty slander. we've got to call it what it is. there is a game of slander that's coming out of u.s. senate offices today in a way that we haven't seen in generations. that's what we should be worried about. >> we saw the staffer who said we're going to prove he's an anti-semite. >> right. friends of hamas. >> peter, i know you're a high level policy analyst but let's talk down and dirt
. in the meantime, republicans continued to find new reasons to justify they are obstruction. senator john mccain's latest gripe is personal. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very amti his own party and his own people. people don't forget that. >> people also don't forget that years after hagel's republican herecy, john mccane said this of the man in 2006. i would be honored to have chuck with me in any capacity. he'd make a great secretary of state. people have also not forgotten that this filibuster has nothing to do with chuck hagel and everything to do with a republican vendetta against the white house. >> all three of us said we're not going to go forward on the hagel nomination until they testify about what happened in benghazi. >> and while republicans now say this latest delay will give them enough time to decide about hagel, they continue to l

of your group? guest: chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael bennet, myself, john mccain, michael rubio, lindsey graham, and, i think, that is it, unless i missed one. bob menendez, i am sorry. host: do you have more that want to join the effort at this point? guest: not specifically that want to join, but there are those sympathetic and when they see the legislation, we think they will come on board. we hope that once they see what is required for someone to advance status and get on a path toward citizenship, they will say it comports with the rule of law, it is humane and realistic and something we have to do. host: do you have folks on the house side working with you? guest: there is a bipartisan group over there that is trying to fashion some legislation as well. people like role labrador, louise bluebeard -- luis gutierrez and many others. they are getting closer to something like the senate is doing, and that certainly helps. host: senator jeff flake is our guest, republican of arizona. we have put our phone lines up. we have set aside the fourth line for illegal immigrants. we w
in the middle of his term. remember, he tried, as did a lot of democrats and john mccain to get immigration reform through in 2007. and that's when the backlash grew. and then when the bush administration was deemed a failure, which many of us believed broadly that it was, a lot of conservatives said that's true. and instead of trying to moderate the party then, they said the problem was this compassionate conservative guy was too liberal. so they pulled the party way over to the right. the problem they have now is the tea party folks are the folks who kind of got them there in 2010. and it's as if the republicans are saying well, we needed your votes to drive this car to the country club, but we really don't want to let you inside the country club. so they're courting a kind of class warfare in the republican party over the next couple of years. >> e.j., one of the things i think you have written about more eloquently than anybody else is the idea of -- you've written ambitiously i should say about the idea of civility, that we can have reasonable disagreements about even very profound dif
. take vietnam. i will never forget standing next to john mccain in the east room of the white house. each of us on either side of president clinton as he announced the once unthinkable normalization of our relations with vietnam, and efforts that john mccain and i worked on for about 10 years to try do. in the last decade, thanks in large part to the work of usaid, our exports to vietnam increased by more than 700%. every one of those percentage points our jobs here in america. in the last two decades, 1000 vietnamese students and scholars have studied spanish and taught -- have studied and taught in america through the fulbright program, including the foreign minister, who i just talked to the other day and who has feelings about america because of that engagement. the list goes on. as the emerging middle class in india, the world's largest democracy, buys our products, that means jobs and incomes for our own middle-class. as our traditional assistance to brazil and decreases, trade there is increasing. brazil is one of the new tigers moving at a double-digit pace. it supports addi
to be confirmed. one thing that's interesting, john mccain, remember, has said that he believes chuck hagel will be confirmed ultimately. john mccain, by the way, was not one of those senators who wrote that letter to the white house asking the president to withdraw chuck hagel's nomination. >> kristen welker e thanks so much with you and we'll check back with you later in the show. >> sounds good. >>> after nearly 40 years in public office, defense secretary leon panetta may have thought he'd be retired by now, but he thought wrong. panetta is still on the job. at a nato brussels in conference, a conference that was supposed to be intended by former senator chuck hagel. hagel has not taken the mantel as they blocked him heading out to recess. mallika henderson, political reporter at "the washington post" and john stanton, washington bureau chief, thank you both for being here. >> john, i want to start with you. citing panetta is not the man that the audience thought they'd be hearing from. does washington's ability portray any weakness to the international community? >> i don't know if it'

john mccain and others giving them more information. they had hoped by sending this yesterday or the day before, that they could change minds and make the senators vote yes to proceed to the vote even if they wanted to reject hagel's nomination. it wasn't. it seems like they are unhappy with this pick, they wanted the president to make a different pick, and they wanted to be -- host: we did see four republicans cross over and vote with democrats and one voting present and not voting to move forward or not. why did they go that way and who were they? guest: senator hatch was one. either you vote yes or you vote no. there was talk that he doesn't believe in the filibuster so he did not want to vote no. i think you should probably vote yes. but republican leadership was actively against this vote so i guess that would be the reason. of the people who voted to not block it one of them was senator collins who is the more moderate republican from the northeast. also the senator from nebraska which is chuck hagel's home state. there was another person who voted to proceed but democra
in particular? we saw senator rubio give the gop response. caller: i think mark rubio, john mccain, ted cruz, a lot of these congressmen who have been in government for a while, and some of the new ones are doing the job that they were sent there to do. they are representing the constituency from where they are from. the democrats do the same. i know we have differences on both sides of the aisle, but i believe that being able to -- being able to work together and coming together as a nation and congress has a lot to do with barack obama as the president. he was reelected. he needs to be in the white house. he needs to lead this nation. he does not need to be out in campaign mode. that is all i have seen from barack obama. campaign, speech -- let's get everybody in the white house, and let's get things done. guest: a couple of points -- we hear this from constituents, that they are frustrated that they are not seeing the leadership. what he is saying really plays into that. leaders are team builders. they know how to bring people forward to find consensus. the president's speech the other ni

john mccain to bobby jindal. it all mere theatrics until we see the cuts take effect? here is the great speaker. >> -- than he is in urging his senate democrats to actually pass a plan. listen, we know there are smarter ways to cut spending and to continue to grow our economy. that's why republicans have acted twice, as kathy said, to replace the sequester with what we would argue are smarter cuts. listen, the president says we have to have another tax increation in order to avoid the sequester. well, mr. president, you got your tax increase. it's time to cut spending here in washington. instead of using our military men and women as campaign props, if the president was serious he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we shouldn't have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> good afternoon. we heard the president say last week that he was going to be forced because of the sequestration to let criminals loose on the street if he didn't get another tax hike. today we're hearing discussions from the secretary of h
the defense budget. last week at a constituents' meeting, senator john mccain said that these sequester cuts could significantly undermine military programs. quote, we're facing a situation where our national security is at risk. senator mccain said, adding that furloughs could affect as many as 49,000 military and defense jobs in arizona. well, i tell you in georgia what's going to happen is that 37,000 civilian department of defense employees will be furloughed, reducing gross pay by $190 million and army base funding would be cut by $233 million. and funding for air force operations would be cut by $5 million. this is in the state of georgia. this is for this fiscal year, this current fiscal year. can you imagine that much money coming out of the economy and not having an impact on the overall economy? it certainly will. let's take all of those who travel. you go to the airport. you rely on the air traffic controllers to make sure that the planes are situated and flying safely so that nobody is going to bump into each other up there in the sky. you're dependent on your t.s.a. personnel to

not been forth coming. you can obviously believe it has. i know that it hasn't. >> senator john mccain not pleased with the president or the press and the responses to the terror attack on september 11th in benghazi, libya. for months the white house has been reluctant to answer questions and this morning we may no why a new report says it was retaliation for secret strikes on al-qaeda that the administration approved. former navy seal brandon web and jack murphy author of a new book "benghazi, the definitive report." you say that john brennan essentially was running a war out of the white house? >> yeah, that is correct. he was authorized to clear these operations inside libya to go in there and destroy weapons and also target high value targets. >> steve: we're talking about a secret war run out of the white house. who gave them the authority? >> it had to be delegated from the president down to john brennan. >> steve: so the war was this. guys, secret guys, special operators, go into libya and get the guns, right? >> i think the main issue is when you have such a small geographic ar
john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary, the democratic senator, going to talk about we need immigration reform? >> i'll let her speak for herself. the argument to make is you're rewarding people out of here illegally. that's not what you should do. there are many arguments against that that i agree with. she's right, the border, for whatever reason, it might be because of our economy. it might be because of increased security. it might be becaus
john mccain, have made similar statements to what scott said. your republican governor, along with other governors around the country, have said they want congress to stop the sequester, to stop these cuts. but i just have to be honest with you, there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. keep in mind nobody's asking them to raise income tax rates. all we're asking is to consider closing tax loopholes and deductions that the speaker of the house, john boehner, said he was willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were a bunch of loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise 800 billion, a trillion dollars by closing loopholes. we're not even asking for that t much. all we're asking is that they close loopholes for the well off and the well connected, for hedge fund managers, for oil companies or corporate jet owners who are all doing very well and don't need these tax loopholes so we can
